Bullock Performance Institute

Established in the fall of 1985 and renamed in 1988 in honor of its founder, the Donald P. Bullock Music Performance Institute's mission is to add to the already rich cultural life of Kalamazoo by creating opportunities to develop closer personal and artistic ties between audience and performer. The Bullock Performance Institute has presented events ranging from formal evening concerts to daytime educational outreach events for local audiences, college students, seniors and youths. As a result, the classical music appreciation and training of student performers and community members will be enhanced, and music lovers in general will have the opportunity to know guest artists more personally.

Dalton Wed@7:30pm: Live and Interactive! events will be held on Wednesdays in the Dalton Center Recital Hall on the campus of Western Michigan University. The series will showcase guest artists, WMU faculty artists and ensembles, and WMU student ensembles. Each event starts with a pre-concert talk hosted by Dr. Robert White at 7 p.m. Information about concerts can be obtained by calling (269) 387-4704 or (269) 387-4678.


The 75-minute no-intermision performance begins promptly at 7:30 p.m. Tickets: $12 (Seniors $10, Students $5) at Miller Auditorium or Dalton Center ticket office before the performance.
All performances are held in the Dalton Center Recital Hall
